To Be at Holden: The Slow Boat to Paradise

John Noltner shares his thoughts with us upon coming back to Holden Village.

This is an excerpt of his first session in the village the summer of 2016.

2016 In the Village . . .

Do you wish you could have been in the village attending the teaching program this forerunner summer?

The 2016 Forerunner summer was one of restoring, reforming and refreshing the village. It was also a time of reflection and study. For our Holden family who were not in the village this year, our teaching staff invite you to a fireside chat about their summer in the village and to explore all of their sessions.

A Conversation with Mark Thompson Telling Stories of Holden Village Early Days

Never before heard stories of some of the earliest days of Holden Village told by Mark Thompson to Larry Howard and Josh Post in December, 2015. Mark and his uncle Reuben Thompson came to the village in May, 1961 as year-round residents having never been to the village before!

Alina Lundholm, granddaughter of Beany Lundholm, came to the village with other students from Augustana College for their January term to work and study. Alina joined the Audio Archive team for a few days and learned how to create mp3 files from cassette tapes and while there asked if we had any recordings of her grandfather.

Stories for Winter

As the cold and dark of winter settles in, its a great time to curl up with cocoa and a story. Check out some of these recordings from story tellers over the years at Holden:

Holden Mine


We have chosen a selection of recordings about life during Holden's mining days. Enjoy!

Holden Village has been fortunate to receive several visits from South African minister and teacher Alan Storey. Many were moved and challenged by these sessions, which are among the most requested.

All of Alan's sessions are available on the audio archive. For a complete bio and list of sessions click here.
